Digital trust as the main theme of Impact fintech’19

Data breaches are appearing in the news on a daily basis – that makes building digital trust among consumers more difficult, but at the same time more important than ever before. It is the best of times for open banking, virtual identification, online shopping and…cyber crimes. It is the best of times, but it is the most challenging of times.

How can we build a digital economy based on trust? In Katowice you’ll get an answer from Dele Atanda – a visionary who is CEO of the world’s first Self-Sovereign AI and Universal Smart Data Marketplace, MetaMe, and founder of The Internet.Foundation. The latter of these is an NGO focused on promoting the ethical use of data in commerce and establishing digital rights as an extension of human rights.

Sustainable Fintech – new track

In September 2019, during Climate Week in New York City, 130 banks from 49 countries launched the Principles for Responsible Banking. One of many recent signs that the financial industry is joining the fight against climate change.

Aside from providing innovative and accessible financing product that can help make the transition to more sustainable technologies as easy as possible – especially among corporate and institutional clients – there is another side to eco-friendly finance.
